Well met, traveler. You have reached the fabled hall of the Warriors of Legend!
Warriors of Legend
The beauty of traditional role-playing games like Dungeons & Dragons is that they bring people together. Although the Internet provides us greater access, it sometimes pushes us further apart. The core mission of WoL is to be an open community where all are welcome and where we focus on using the power of the Web to make being an RPG fan more social. Whether you play tabletop games or CRPGs, you’ll find like-minded folk here.
Tabletop Role-Playing Games
At one point, we worried that the Web would kill the classic RPG. Fortunately, several different teams of amazing software developers came together and built virtual tabletops. Now, we have multiple options for playing AD&D and other pen-and-paper games online. You can reconnect with your old college buddies, or you can find a new group right here on Warriors of Legend. Our interests don’t stop at D&D. We have interest groups for Shadowrun, Vampire: The Masquerade, GURPS and so much more. You’ll also find a great deal of interest in board games, such as Pathfinder, Ascension and so forth.
Computer Role-Playing Games
Baldur’s Gate, it’s sequel and Planescape: Torment will always have a special place in our hearts, but they’re single-player experiences. Our focus is on how we can play these games together. The good news is that modern developers have recognized this need and have begun transitioning in that direction. Consider Larian Studios, which developed the Divinity: Original Sin game in the classic isometric style but with a co-op component that let you play the game with another person from beginning to end.
Collectible Card Games
Like many RPGers, we also have a special affinity for CCGs. We still play Magic the Gathering, the granddaddy of them all, with physical cards. We also play Blizzard’s Hearthstone and eagerly anticipate Elder Scrolls Legends. Whether you like to play Magic online or one of the newer CCGs, you’ll find a lot of valuable information here on Warriors of Legend as well as fellow warriors who share your particular interests.
Focus on Online Gaming
We began WarriorsOfLegend.com with a focus on online gaming, and we’ll never lose sight out of that. That doesn’t mean that we’ll ignore RPGs that lack a multiplayer component, but we’ll always be looking at these genres from that angle. It’s our hope that communities like ours can inspire more developers to do what Larian Studios did.
Focus on Community
Community is really the operative word when it comes to Warriors of Legend. We understand that we’re a niche website in a sea of sites about role-playing games. Nevertheless, we’ve climbed that mountain to become one of the largest such websites online, and that success is due to gamers like you. Help make this community even bigger and better by following us on Twitter, commenting on our content, interacting during our Twitch streams and posting on our message boards. Find your niche, and join in!
